Pedro Aguayo Ramírez is a Mexican professional wrestler who achieved fame in lucha libre as Perro Aguayo, Jr. or El Hijo del Perro Aguayo ("The Son of Perro Aguayo"). He is the legitimate son of lucha libre legend Perro Aguayo.

Debuting professionally at the age of 15, "Perrito" started out wrestling established veterans who could bring the best out of him in AAA. He teamed with his father semi-regularly and the pair won the National Tag Team titles on two occasions. Aguayo made a big impact by teaming with Héctor Garza and engaging in a four-way feud with Heavy Metal and Latin Lover. These four competed in various tag and four-way matches throughout the lengthy feud, with Garza and Metal losing their hair at different times. In May of 2003, Aguayo jumped from AAA to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). He was initially brought in as a face to team with Negro Casas against Los Guerreros del Infierno. However, Aguayo did not the expected positive reactions from the crowd. CMLL decided to turn him heel by having him win a tournament for a shot at Atlantis' Michinoku Junior Heavyweight title. He won the tournament over heels, but they were popular heels like Dr. Wagner, Jr. and Rey Bucanero, who had made their name in CMLL, so by the time he met the babyface Atlantis for the title, he was seen as a heel by the fans.

The title challenge was unsuccessful, but Aguayo was quickly put into a program with Los Capos with the story being he was getting revenge on Universo 2000 for ending his father's career. During this feud, Shocker's popular Los Guapos group backed Aguayo and he became a face again. The feud continued through the winter and into 2004 and was ended when Aguayo and El Terrible (a member of Los Guapos) defeated Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000 in a double hair vs. hair match. During the spring, Aguayo once again backed up Negro Casas and Shocker in their feud with Pierroth, Jr., Vampiro Canadiense and Tarzan Boy. The two groups went at it in trios, singles, and tag matches before they were put in the annual "Cage of Death" match where the last two men in the cage, regardless of which team they are on, face each other in a hair vs. hair match. The heel trio escaped early and Shocker made a quick exit as well. Aguayo and Casas faced each other and Perro pinned Casas, winning his hair.

Tensions began to rise between Casas and Aguayo, and when Héctor Garza jumped to CMLL in July, Aguayo ditched Casas and joined him. After turning heel again, he took part in the Leyenda de Plata tournament, an annual tournament in the honor of lucha libre legend El Santo. After securing his place in the semifinals, Aguayo interfered in Negro Casas' match with Atlantis, costing Casas the bout and allowing Atlantis to advance. After defeating Atlantis in the semifinals, Aguayo faced the previous year's winner, Felino, for the trophy. After winning the match, El Hijo del Santo came to the ring to award the trophy to Aguayo. Aguayo said he didn't want the trophy and smashed it, claiming that Santo wasn't nearly the legend that Perro Aguayo, Sr. was. The angle was hot and played off the feud the original Santo and Perro Aguayo had during the 1970s. Due to El Hijo del Santo's short tour with CMLL, the feud was rushed towards an indecisive singles match. The closest thing to closure for the feud was a trios match at the CMLL 71st Anniversary show where the team of Hijo de Perro Aguayo, Hèctor Garza and El Terrible (soon to be named La Furia del Norte) defeated Hijo del Santo, Negro Casas and Shocker. After that match, Santo focused more on his program with Averno and Los Guerreros del Infierno and Aguayo set his sights on Casas. Aguayo lost to Casas in a match for the 71st Anniversary show trophy and the feud cooled down from there.

In November of that year, Aguayo reheated his feud with Los Capos by teaming frequently with Vampiro and Pierroth, Jr. who were also feuding with Los Capos at the time. At the year-end show, he had another singles match with Universo 2000 which led to Aguayo's father running in and making the save. In February of 2005, Perro Aguayo, Sr. announced his return to wrestling for one match where he would team with his son against Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000 in a double hair vs. hair match. Aguayo and son won the match, billed as Cien Caras' retirement match (Cien Caras would continue to wrestle but not in CMLL's main arenas). Soon after the match, La Familia de Tijuana (Halloween, Damián 666), and Aguayo decided to start a new faction, Los Perros del Mal. Soon, the group would consist of Aguayo, La Familia, La Furia del Norte, Blue Demon, Jr., Pierroth, Jr. and his two sons. The group took on many rivals, including Negro Casas, Felino, Heavy Metal (who had just jumped from AAA), Máscara Mágica, Universo 2000 and Aguayo's new focus, the rising star Místico who had defeated him in a main event singles match. The two agreed to a hair vs. mask match, but no date was announced. Los Perros del Mal faced off against their rivals in the 2005 "Cage of Death" match where Damián 666 took the hair of Máscara Mágica.

Perro died on March 20th, 2015, due to a freak accident during a wrestling match.
He and Manik were wrestling against Rey Mysterio Jr. and Xtreme Tiger at a show for The Crash promotion in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico
